SUMMARY OF CRASH:

 

On 08/06/2018, the Vermont State Police responded to VT RT. 125 in the Town of

Ripton for a reported motor vehicle crash. Upon arrival, Troopers learned that

Vehicle #1 was towing a trailer with heavy equipment. As Vehicle #1 entered a

sharp corner in the roadway, the trailer tipped, causing the heavy equipment to

roll into the roadway. The equipment was blocking both lanes of travel.

 

VT RT. 125 was temporarily shut down until the equipment was loaded back onto

the trailer, and removed. Significant gouge marks in the roadway were caused by

the trailer.

 

The Vermont State Police were assisted on scene by the Ripton Fire Department.
